about

Cycling is enjoying a surge in popularity in these pandemic days, and this collaboration examines some of the linkages and soundscapes this boom has entailed. It stems from an online residency hosted by Iklectik in London and Lacking Sound festival in Taipei, which brought together UK and Taiwanese artists to explore quarantine in May of 2020. With Taiwan one of the world's major producers of bikes, and Londoners forced onto waiting lists to purchase one Kate Carr and Sheryl Cheung decided to examine their respective cities of London, and Taipei through the prism of the bicycle. This piece explores the bicycle as a musical instrument, as well as an object which can somehow speak to this particular moment with the pandemic. It offers a glimpse of our real and imagined cycling soundscapes as we are plunged into, and attempt to escape the 'new normal'.
